H-1B quota of 65,000 exhausted within initial five days

H-1B quota of 65,000 exhausted within initial five days
The H-1B quota of 65,000 visas has been exhausted within the initial five days starting 1st April for the fourth successive year. It also highlights the demand of IT and shortage of IT professionals in the US.

The USCIS has not given how many applications they had received, but it is predicted that the number is bigger than the previous 2,30,000. This would trigger computer generated lottery system for randomly selecting the petitions required to meet the limits of 65,000 for general category and 20,000 for advanced degree exception.

USCIS had said its statement that it had got enough H-1B petitions for reaching the limit for the year 2017. 

According to Todd Schulte, President,, US immigration has long been the nation’s biggest competitive advantage in the international economy, and it must motivate the best and the brightest for continuing to develop their business and create jobs.

Indian IT companies are the biggest users of this non immigrant visa that permits the employers from the US to temporarily hire overseas workers. The applications for the H-1B visa are submitted from the 1st April for the FY starting from October.
